Purple clouds

The Boomershoot web cam has been giving us purple clouds in the morning:P20061305071810

Very cool.

However, I suspect is something on the lens or perhaps a damaged sensor. There are purple spots in the upper corners even when there are no clouds:



One thought on “Purple clouds

  1. Could be a poor thermal filter. Some cameras pick up IR/Heat as purple. Google “purple exhaust glow” and you can find pictures of exhaust headers ‘glowing purple’ … They don’t, they glow orange, but some cameras are thrown off by the heat.

    As to why it happens in the morning? My guess would be that the sun is low in the sky, so the camera is getting direct sunlight.
